KUCHING, May 19: Sarawak Metro Sdn Bhd (Sarawak Metro) sent two apprentices on a four-week industrial attachment in Tangshan, China.

According to Sarawak Metro in a statement today, the two YTP apprentices, Muhammad Afio Rudi and Nur Adilla Hushairi, will undergo industrial attachment in Tangshan Baichuan Intelligent Machine Co Ltd, China, focusing on the depot equipment maintenance vehicle (DEMV) hydrogen purging system.


The industrial attachment aims to provide a thorough understanding of the manufacturing and assembly processes involved in the hydrogen purging system, thus enhancing their knowledge in the system’s components, safety protocols and innovative design methodologies.

Meanwhile, Sarawak Metro Chief Executive Officer Mazli Mustaffa said the purpose of sending the apprentices is to build a pool of local talents for the Kuching Urban Transportation System (KUTS).

“We are keeping to our commitment in upskilling our workforce towards ensuring the success of this noble project, where we are aiming to modernise public transport and ease the traffic congestion in Greater Kuching.

“Apart from the opportunity to acquire indepth knowledge of the systems and equipment, this industrial attachment is also a platform for overseas exposure for our young engineers,” he said.

Other than this latest industrial attachment, Sarawak Metro’s staff and apprentices have completed similar attachments, namely with CRRC MRT Holding Group Co Ltd in Changsha in August 2023 and with Fangda Innotech Co Ltd in Shenzen in March this year.

A similar industrial attachment was also conducted with Global Rail in Selangor for two months in August last year. — DayakDaily
